Europe—home to dozens of NATO countries and the birthplace of the western democracy as we know it today—has not seen a major military conflict in nearly 25 years, and has not been in all-out war in over half a century. Yet, despite the peace that has settled over Europe, it is still one of the most heavily armed and fortified continents on the planet.
And it’s the Americans, by and large, who spend more on Europe’s defense. More, in fact, than all other NATO countries combined.
You’d think this assistance would afford American service members the benefit of the doubt if they were ever accused of a criminal offense. Or, at the very least, these men and woman should be given a fair trial without the assumption of guilt before they ever set foot in court.
On the contrary, you will be abused, relentlessly interrogated, and your reputation will be burned to the ground before you ever have a chance to defend yourself.
- Europe is home to some of our most important allies. It is also a seething hotbed of anti-American activities. Because of this, our very government will gladly throw you to the wolves rather than risk open hostilities with American forces in the region.
- Should you be accused of a criminal offense, you will face a conviction rate of nearly 90%. This is due to many factors, but hiring an attorney that doesn’t know what he or she is doing is far and away the one that carries the most weight.
- Most service members that are convicted have been underrepresented and will face incredibly harsh sentencing, not least of which includes the loss of all military benefits, and jail time and a punitive discharge.
